Slipknot Vermillion Lyrics

Last updated: 11/26/2014 05:15:41 AM

She seems dressed in all the rings
Of past fatalities
So fragile yet so devious
She continues to see it
Climatic hands that press
Her temples and my chest
Enter the night that she came home

Oh (She's the only one that makes me sad)

She is everything and more
The solemn hypnotic
My Dahlia bathed in possession
She is home to me

I get nervous, perverse, when I see her it's worse
But the stress is astounding
It's now or never she's coming home

Oh (She's the only one that makes me sad)

Hard to say what caught my attention
Fixed and crazy, Aphid attraction
Carve my name in my face, to recognize
Such a pheromone cult to terrorize

I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me


I'm a slave, and I am a master
No restraints and, unchecked collectors
I exist through my need, to self oblige
She is something in me, that I despise

I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me

I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me


She isn't real (She isn't real)
I can't make her real (can't make her real)
She isn't real (She isn't real)
I can't make her real (can't make her real)

Veritas | Reviewer: Vox de Veritatis | 11/22/14

The lyrics are not about a physical woman, a dream woman, a relationship,ect. It is occult, about the goddess energy, the sacred feminine enegy, i.e., his emotions, conscience, care. Don't believe me? Read the lyrics again with this new perception in mind. Stop trying to push pieces of the wrong puzzle into place and it becomes obvious. These musicians are heavily into studying this knowledge and expressing it in their art. Pick up a book or two and you will have a much deeper respect and appreciation for their art.

Life | Reviewer: Rusty | 6/7/14

This reminds me of the person I loved with all my heart, he was the one who got me to open up about being bi, he was a sexually abusive whore, but for some reason no matter what he did to me I forgave it. He made his mind up to tell me he was in love with me, but threw me to the side like trash, so now I act like I never even cared for him in any way.

Perfection? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/25/14

For me, the song is full of pain. It seems to be that girl 'unreal', because of perfection.. both psyhical, and as a person 'I get nervous, perverse, when I see her it's worse' and 'She is home to me'. One of the best songs, it's fitting perfectly for everyone

This song has a different meaning for each person. To me, this describes how I was before my first girlfriend and after she dumped me. Before I met her, I always felt like I would never find the perfect girl for me. That I could never find a girl with everything I wanted in her. "She isn't real. I can't make her real." But then I met her. Everything I wanted, she had. Things were good for the first five months. But then I started learning more about her, and I didn't like some of the things she did and hid. They pissed me off. I learned of her imperfections. But I still stayed with her. In the end, she dumped me to date someone else. I was lost. The illusion had ended. Then it put me back to the start. "She isn't real. I can't make her real."

(not)my relationship | Reviewer: 0 | 11/10/13

this reminds me of my ex Gf... we had both a dual personality, and our double loved each other as we did. Now, this seems like the sad song of other me's love story. i can't stop feeling empty while listening this song, but in the same time it gives me pleasure, because i feel kind of understood.

Vermillion | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/22/13

This song reminds me of my relationship with my ex boyfriend. This song explains how he must feel towards me. Although he loved me fiercely, I hurt him so badly. What he pictured I would be isn't real. Unfortunately I never realized what I had done till it was too late.

great song | Reviewer: ashleyrae | 2/25/13

This is a badass song. I get lost in it constantly with thoughts of my boyfriend. ..who is doing time right now. So in a sense, at the moment, its like hes not real. Some of the lyrics I admit I dont quite understand....but still, the melody n dudes voice just take me briefly to another world.

Carrie | Reviewer: Andromeda | 1/30/13

I think this song is inspired by the Stephen King book 'Carrie' about an outcasted girl that eventually gets asked to the school dance by a popular boy, only to have pigs blood thrown on her. She goes insane and burns down the school, then returns home in a daze where her mother tries to kill her, calling her a rape child. She unwillingly kills her mother, and her house is dragged into hell, preassumably killing her. 'She's the only one that makes me sad' shows how pathetic she was, and how teachers felt sorry for her. 'She's coming home forever...' details how her coming home was in fact her undoing. 'I won't let this buld up inside of me' is the power within her, killing all that laughed at her, as is 'SHe is something in me I despise. 'She's not real. i csn't make her real' is the view of the only survivor, who dreams of apologising to Carrie, but Carrie always kills her in her dreams, driving the survivor insane. THis is a deep song that had a parallel meaning for me.

Vermillion Remedy to my so called love life. | Reviewer: 3mmanu3l | 7/17/12

This song is a remedy to my so called love life. She pisses me off most of the times, but I never let that build up inside of me. She like to dress to kill,and all the punks in my hood would stare at her. I think she likes their attention. Is as if I don't exist and that makes me sad. So I transfered all my love to this song. Truth is I love this song so much more than I loved her.. Big up to §lipknoT.

Remedy to my soul. | Reviewer: 3mmanu3l | 7/17/12

When I listen to this song. All my love life troubles vanish into thin air. Is as if this song is somehow relavent to my life. Because most of the times She makes me sad. When she flirts those futureless punks.But hey You know what I never let my sadness build up any further inside of me. So Im proud to say this song is a Remedy to my soul. For it puts me at ease. Wish all the music in world could be like this.

So Ironic | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/30/12

so there is this Girl that i really want, smart, beautiful, graceful, i dream about her as the line goes "she is the only one who makes me sad" Because the Dreams about her are More or So Haunting Me, "She isn't real" she dosen't feel the same way, "I cant make her real" i cant change her mind. Its Driving Me Insane.BTW Luv u Slipknot from the Land of the Aussies, You are Bringing me through some hard times.

Slipknot, harbingers of fucking epic lyrics. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/22/12

Whenever I listen to this song, I find myself thinking about my current girlfriend. I've grown to love her, she says she's happy with me but constantly tells me how unhappy she is with her life and has made a few attempts on her life. I wish I could just get rid of everything I feel for her because I hate being so attatched to her, "She is something in me, that I despise". I can't even remember anymore what made me fall so hard for her, "hard to say what caught my attention, fixed and crazy, Aphid attraction". Everything she does feels like it's aim is to hurt me in someway, like her feelings for me aren't real. "She isn't real, I can't make her real". But I know I need her, so I won't let this build up inside of me.
What Vermillion means to me...
Slipknot is the fucking (sic)kest band of all time and their lyrics are genius.

My Review and Interpretation | Reviewer: Zachary Borkowski | 12/5/11

I always thought this song was about him dreaming of a woman that doesn't exist. He's desperate to find a soul mate, someone to complete him, yet, "she isn't real, I can't make her real..."

Almighty let's get something straight | Reviewer: Grace Owens | 11/4/11

I think that its cool that everyone got a different meaning out of that song. But isn't that what music is about? That is why I love Slipknot. Because they bring to light the emotions that everyone pretends they don't have, and tell the world that if they dont like it they are screwed. I can't stand it when people think that just because it's loud that there'd is no point in it. But there is, you were just to naive to see it. Just because you don't like it or understand it doesnt mean we are wrong to like it. The story that I get from this song is that we all have the ideal person that we want but when we find the person closest to it, they have their own problems and we realize we aren't anywhere near strong enough to help them. And that is how I know there is a God, and he has a very sick sense of humor.
